    Hello Everyone,

    I have been shaving with a SR for about 6 weeks now. For the last 15 years, I just got out of the shower, grabbed a multi-blade cartridge shaver (mach-3 lately) and dry shaved. Took just seconds and was good enough for me.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the prototype of the SRP Logo LE razor. It was made from a stencil custom razor maker, SRP member (PapaBull), Robert Williams did of the logo at the top of our page and is on the money. I should have it in hand early next week if not later today. It is a 6/8 with G-10 scales. As you can see the SRP logo is etched in the belly of the blade and Robert's trademark is on the tang mark side with the XII (year) etched on the reverse along with each razors individual # engraved by hand.
